    Cracked open my Belgian Single the other day. On Saturday I should be bottling my wheat stout variation that is using 80% oak smoked wheat. Interested to see how this one turns out. Sample I pulled is a perfect BBQ beer haha.

    I need a normal drinkable beer next so im going to brew up a Czech Pale Lager. Tired of looking at my beers in the fridge and seeing a bunch of weird shit :lol:

    :shock: local homebrew store gave me 19 Omega yeast packs for free today. They are all dated around the 6 month mark and since he knows I like the funky stuff he offered them to me for free haha. Won't turn down a bunch of free Brett and farmhouse strains. Gonna start doing 2-3 packs per starter to just bank any that happen to survive. Should be able to bank a lot though.

    Waiting for our wedding beers to get CO2, should be done by next weekend, then a little time for them to mature before it is time to see how the guests enjoy them.
    Hopefully they all like porter and saison :lol:

    I'd go for the saison and the two Brux, then add a lot of the hops to give bitterness and try and mask to give some dextrins still.
    Or is it a requirement it is hoppy in character?

    Yea it's supposed to be hoppy in character. It was originally supposed to just use the dipa as the sacc but I'm glad he added the other two. At the end of the day they only need to drink 3 and I need to drink the rest.

    I want to aim for a bright and fruity Brett flavor that hopefully won't be overpowered by the hops. I guess I'm shooting to do a bretty IPL by doing one of those "quick lager" methods. I picked the two milder Brett strains hoping the hops dont overpower it. I love trois but usually use it as a primary in young Brett beers. I don't think I've ever pitched it I to a secondary outside of my barrel.

    Back from Berlin Beer Week (or rather the closing weekend). A great trip once again. The next trip to Berlin will be already in September for Stone Berlin's one year anniversary party. :beerwink:

    Oh, yeah, next week I'm going to Copenhagen to visit Uncle Soda. Might end up in some of the city's beer bars.

    One month to go to the San Diego Beer Week. I was determined to get past 2000 beers on Untappd on that trip, but it now seems I'm reaching it well before (now at 1992). Oh, I have a Ballast Point tasting session coming up this Friday. :beerwink:

    Speaking of San Diego Beer Week, mooyagi, you guys should come. You pretty much live in the neighbourhood anyhow. :beerwink:

    Then to fly home Sunday.

    Racked my black IPA into secondary. Split it in two; one half has just loads and loads of Cascade for dry hops and the other half some espresso beans and espresso soaked oak chips.


    "Espresso Oak Aged Wookiee" for Yuletide. :beerwink:
